"The One whose presence you desire above all else,
the Father who sent his Son to be with us and for us,
is pleased with you.
In repentance and faith, therefore,
with the praise of God on our lips,
we can go forth to pursue our daily labor.
There to find the neighbor.
There to carry out our spiritual worship.
There to do, as best we can, good work."
(Gilbert Meilaender )
After feeling very overwhelmed yesterday, I am carrying this thought with me today.
